The Boston Celtics “aggressively pursued” a trade for Davis Bertans at the trade deadline, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated. 

The Wizards are hoping to re-sign Bertans and resisted trade offers for him as he has a breakout season.

According to Mannix, the Celtics were “willing to go deep into the draft war chest to pry Bertains loose.”

The “war chest” of the Celtics is an outdated mode of thinking as they only own this year’s first round pick from the Memphis Grizzlies and the Milwaukee Bucks.
